This course trains attendees in the curriculum and skills needed to facilitate the HIV Risk Reduction Project for Women (aged 18–45 years). The training includes a framework for reducing HIV risk by incorporating African-American culture, gender issues, and power theories. Attendees learn how to use the curriculum to give the program’s participants insights into transmission of HIV and other sexually transmitted diseases, and to help them increase their understanding of male-female communication and negotiation skills regarding healthy sexual practices. Facilitator skills such as engaging participants in mini-lectures, practice exercises, case studies, and role plays are covered.

Audience
The course is intended for public health practitioners and community health workers, including those from community-based organizations, nonprofit organizations, churches, and educational agencies, who are involved in or interested in reducing HIV risk among African-American women.

Duration
2 days (7 hours each).
